Have been going to The London Fryer (Roys chippy) for about 25 years and never had a bad chip. Also this is the only place that does a baby's head ( pudding) and chips with curry sauce in south devon so gets my vote just for that. Only downside is the takeaway queue gets in the way of the sit... More

Hands down the best fish and chips in Torbay, their chicken nuggets are the best I've ever had anywhere, better than KFCs boneless chicken. Would definitely recommend visiting here!

It is not pretentious. It offers you good quality food at reasonable price. Their batter is always perfect. Their fish is always... More

The London fryer has the best fish in the bay, it is the only place i can go to that has skate on its menu. As well as various other selections of fish, it goes perfect with their superb chips and mushy peas. For anyone, who does not enjoy the cardboard boxes, all you have to do is ask at... More

this used to be an excellent fish and chip shop but now they have stopped wrapping their fish and chips in paper which makes them soggy and leathery. I will not be going here again

If I want Fish and Chips I travel 20 mile round trip to go here. The fish is amazing moist and succulent. Roy works hard with his staff to cook just enough so what your served is as fresh as can be. Not sat in the warmer getting past its best. Yes occasionally you have to wait at busy times... More

We've been coming here for the past 5 years. The fish is always really fresh and the chips are lovely. The staff are really friendly and helpful and the seasonal decorations are always worth popping in for. Would highly recommend the take away & cafe.
